    Now there's a surprise. Which is why Windows security will never be any good and why Vista will struggle to be as secure as XP currently is. :rolleyes:

    As far as corporate relations go, this was a good move on Microsoft's part.

    As for the other argument, of course economics will outweigh security. Because Microsoft is there to make money. Businesses only concern themselves with things like "saving the world" [or in this case, making the Internet safer] if it increases their profit/inflow of revenue.

    But on that note, security in the end will have to be implemented because downtime from a worm or virus ultimately results in a loss of money. Perhaps not up to speed for the security professionals, but up to speed in order to protect investors in M$'s software.

    Ah, my apologies for the vague wording.

    I meant software/service suppliers such as Sony and corporate entities of that nature.
